Though television was once perceived as the last resort of fading film actors, in the past five years, it’s pulled an increasingly high-profile roster of Hollywood talent into its ranks. First, it was anthology series like Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story, which allowed actors like Jessica Lange to experiment with a rotating roster of characters from season to season. Cable programmers like HBO, Cinemax, and Showtime have also offered immense creative freedom to actors and directors like Clive Owen and Steven Soderbergh on The Knick, Jude Law on The Young Pope, and David Lynch, returning to television at last with Twin Peaks: The Return. True Detective offered a platform for the likes of Matthew McConaughey, Colin Farrell, and Woody Harrelson. And, while as with most things, this was an opportunity that was primarily first extended to male artists and the “auteurs” who gave prestige television its reputation, television has also offered women an area to push their characters and projects further.

Take, for example, Big Little Lies. During a recent panel discussion, actress Nicole Kidman—one member of the miniseries’ astonishing ensemble cast—explained that she and Reese Witherspoon were inspired in part by Jane Campion’s Top of the Lake. “At the time there was True Detective, which had male leads, and we wanted to do something that had female leads and was set in America,” she said, according to The Hollywood Reporter, adding that Top of the Lake “was the stepping stone” to realizing their vision.

“We weren’t being offered the sort of roles we wanted in terms of complexity and that was born out of a desire to create an opportunity for ourselves and our friends,” Kidman said. Based on Kidman’s testimony, and that of other actors who have turned to television—Top of the Lake and Handmaid’s Tale star Elisabeth Moss has spoken about the increased creative control offered on the small screen—it still seems television is where actors turn only when strong film roles are no longer available. The difference is, now, television is also where the most exciting stories, the most nuanced characters, are being developed. Kidman stars in China Girl, the second season of Top of the Lake, which was one of the best-reviewed pieces to emerge from the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. Big Little Lies was a viral hit. The Handmaid’s Tale launched a thousand thinkpieces and inspired countless protests with its all-too-prescient speculative fiction narrative.

“I think there’s an enormous appeal for actors working there because you have time to develop a character and for stories to unfold,” Kidman said. “That’s where obviously the great roles are being developed for women right now.”

Actress Jessica Lange echoed this frustration in a new interview with AARP magazine, in which she discusses how “ageism is pervasive” in Hollywood. “It’s not a level playing field,” she said. “I think about how few wonderful actresses of my generation are still doing viable, important film work. You go to television. You go to stage.” Lange had planned to retire before Ryan Murphy approached her about American Horror Story in 2011—when she debuted in the series, she was 62. “It’s the desire to do something brave,” she said of her emergence as a television star, “to be challenged.” And for many women actresses, no matter their reputation and bankability, television is where this challenge can most readily be found.

Nicole Kidman is looking to put her days of drama behind her.

The Oscar-winner says she never gets offered comedic roles and she’d like to change that.

“They always say I’m not funny,” said Kidman Saturday at a panel for TV critics to talk about her upcoming role in the second installment of SundanceTV’s “Top of the Lake.”

The 50-year-old actress said she’s at a point in her life where she’s eager to try anything and isn’t worried about failure.

“I’m willing to fall on my face, I’m willing to get back up again. I want to keep trying.” she said.

She also added that she’s learning about comedy from her 9-year-old daughter with her husband Keith Urban, whom she’s “sure has Lucille Ball in her.”

Speaking to a group of reporters after the panel, Kidman said she grew up watching comedy shows like “I Love Lucy” and her father was a fan of the satirical MAD Magazine.

“The thing that makes me close to people is laughing with them. I love it,” she said.

“Top of the Lake: China Girl” debuts will air on three consecutive nights beginning Sept. 10 on SundanceTV.

Kidman plays the adoptive mother to the daughter Elisabeth Moss’ character gave up at birth for adoption.

People.com highlights comments Nicole said during the Summer TCA Press Tour about the possibility of a second season of Big Little Lies.

What happens after you get away with murder? If you’re a Big Little Lies fan, you might just have to wait a little longer to find out.

Talking to reporters at the Summer Television Critics’ Association Press Tour on Saturday, Nicole Kidman dashed the hopes of fans when she revealed the uncertain ground on which a second season of HBO’s surprise hit miniseries actually stands.

Despite near-universal praise from critics and a devoted following, Kidman revealed the show has yet to be renewed — although not for lack of trying. “There’s an abundance of ideas and if we can wrestle them into a script form, then yes … but right now, it’s very up in the air unfortunately, but that’s just what it is.”

The show, originally intended to run for just seven episodes, inspired a zealous fanbase and six of the most-coveted Emmy Award nominations. In the wake of this success, it would seem a second season is an obvious response. However, Kidman revealed that it might be the material that stands in the way of the show’s return, rather than any business concern: “So much of it is trying to stay true to the characters and their voices. If we can do it, then it will be done.”

“I believe their stories warrant [a second season] and I don’t want to abandon them. We don’t want to sell them short, either. But I’m hoping we can find it if we take the leap,” the The Beguiled star added.

Kidman, 50, also seemed to put some weight on the results of TV’s biggest award show, noting that the Emmy attention “inches us closer to a second season.”

Season 1 of Big Little Lies is currently streaming on HBO Go and HBO Now.

Between her Emmy nomination and her upcoming role on the critically acclaimed “Top of the Lake,” Nicole Kidman is taking over TV — and she’s open to doing even more on the small screen.

“Would I love to do more TV? Absolutely. Is it in the future? I don’t know,” Kidman said Saturday at a panel during the Television Critics Association press tour.

Kidman was recently nominated for an Emmy for her performance in HBO’s “Big Little Lies,” which she also executive produced alongside Reese Witherspoon and David E. Kelley. The show is Emmy nominated for best miniseries.

She will next appear in the second season of “Top of the Lake,” in which she plays the mother of the child that protagonist Det. Robin Griffin (Elisabeth Moss) gave up for adoption.

But after two dramatic television roles, Kidman said she’s ready for lighter material.

“I would love to be able to do a comedy,” she said. “I never get offered them. I’m always get offered dramas.”

Kidman, who turned 50 last month, said “at this stage in my life, I’m so up for anything.”

“I’m just at that place where I’m like, ‘I’m gonna try it,'” she said. “I’m willing to fall flat on my face. I know how to get back up again.”

“Game of Thrones” star Gwendoline Christie also stars in the second season, called “Top of the Lake: China Girl.”

In a year that has brought Kidman success and acclaim in both television and film — she was nominated for an Academy Award for her role in “Lion” — the actress said she’s entering her 50’s with “gratitude.”

“I’m very happy to be here and, I’ve said, to have this year — it makes me cry — with all of these things come together at the same time, it’s phenomenal,” she said. “I don’t know how that happened because it was not thought out; it was given to me that way. So I just bow down and I’m very, very grateful.”

“Top of the Lake: China Girl” will air over three nights on Sundance TV starting September 10.
